[Please be aware that parts of this dream may not be appropriate for young or sensitive children.]


In my dream, I am in what resembles a long, arched corridor. As I look out through its transparent wall, I see the beauty of many stars and colorful cloud-like formations. Coming from my left, I hear a galloping horse and the sound of a trumpet. Looking through the opening toward what I know is Orion, I see a white horse running very fast toward me. An angel is riding on the horse, and he is leaning over toward the right side next to the horse’s mane. He is holding onto the horse’s mane with his left hand, and in his right hand, he is holding a very long golden trumpet. As the horse runs toward me at an amazing speed through the corridor, the angel blows on the trumpet. I know that the trumpet’s sound is announcing something that is about to happen. Its sound continues and gets louder.


Suddenly and very quickly, the horse stops in front of me. The angel immediately jumps off the left side of the horse, leans the trumpet against the horse, and comes around to its right side where I am standing. He tells me to prepare for the great messenger, because the one I call the Herald has been sent with messages that are to be shared, and I will be instructed when to share them. Again the angel says to prepare for the great messenger, because he brings a message from the heavenly Father, spoken while He sits on His throne.


The angel places his right hand on my left shoulder, calls me by my heavenly name, and again instructs me to prepare for the great messenger. He turns and goes to my right side and points toward the sky. I see the Herald in a very large room at a very large table where I see maps, many sheets of paper, blueprints, and books. I watch as he rolls up the maps, then stacks the sheets of paper and puts them into a certain order. Then he proceeds to roll up the blueprints. As he begins to put the maps, blueprints, stacks of paper, and books in his arms, there are so many that he calls for others who stand nearby to help gather the rest of the maps, blueprints, papers, and books.


After all the items are gathered, the Herald stops to make sure that not one message he was given is left behind. I know that this great messenger is the one who took Satan’s place, and now he stands nearest to the throne of God. This angel, who asked to be called the Herald and always tells me that the only name that is worthy to be spoken is Jesus, is the angel named Gabriel. Carrying all the items that were on the table, he and the other angels proceed through the door and leave the room.


Next, the announcing angel, the one who announced the Herald’s arrival, informs me that he is to show me something. He touches my right hand, and immediately I am in the openness of space. I see a very dark background; it is the pit where the earth is. The angel tells me to watch closely, because I will be shown things that are symbolic but literally happen. I now watch six, clearly illuminated angels carrying into view a very large, pure golden trumpet. There are three angels on each side of the trumpet, which is as large as several train cars. Once the trumpet is in place, the same six angels place a second trumpet inside the first trumpet. Once that trumpet is in place, the same six angels place a third trumpet inside the second trumpet. The angels repeat the process with three more trumpets. Six trumpets have now been stacked. I understand that this is a symbol of what has already been fulfilled.


Now the announcing angel states that he is to show me the next message. Again, I am looking up toward Orion. I see the same six angels moving a seventh trumpet into place. Each trumpet has always been aligned with the mouthpiece facing Orion and the bell end toward the earth. The angel tells me to watch closely. Now I see the Herald coming through Orion with his assisting angels a little behind him, and they enter into the mouthpiece end of the trumpet. The angel tells me to watch the bell end of the trumpet. Suddenly, I hear the most tremendous brass sounds coming from the trumpet, as if a thousand train horns were blowing at the same time. It almost seems as if the Herald and the angels are causing the sound, because they are moving through the trumpet so quickly. Suddenly, I see the Herald come through the bell end of the trumpet. He is carrying the maps, blueprints, papers, and books. The other angels carrying the rest of the items follow behind. I am made to understand that the seventh trumpet is not yet ready to be placed with the others, because it has not been completely fulfilled.


The dream changes and now I stand looking out over a large, very green pasture with tall grass and countless lambs. Some run and play, others eat, and some are curled up asleep. A small flowing stream meanders through the pasture. In the distance, I notice a man walking along the stream. He is dressed in a long white robe; his hair is wavy and lies on his shoulders. He holds a shepherd’s rod in his right hand and a straight staff in his left hand. I hear him speak gently to the lambs. From a distance, I see him turn and begin to walk toward me. As he approaches, I recognize that He is Jesus. I want to run to Him, but the angel says to wait. When Jesus reaches me, I hug Him and say how much I have missed my walk with Him and ask why it has been so long. He smiles and replies that He is with me every day.


Jesus reveals that the messages in this dream began months ago, in February of 2012. However, there was a reason why I was not to share each message separately, but rather as one, long dream. Then Jesus tells me that certain events we see happening will occur more frequently. He stresses that very many are losing their way as Satan throws obstacles in their path, such as wrong teachings on the seven trumpets. Many spend their time pursuing new ideas that are contrary to what has already been revealed. He reminds me that we have been instructed to prepare for the great battle that lies just ahead. Satan and his army are doing all they can to cause God’s people to lose their way on the path to heaven.


Jesus takes my right hand, and we begin walking through the pasture. He tells me to notice that His sheep obey out of love, not fear. He also tells me to notice that the sheep are all lambs. Then He shares the following illustration: “As it is written, I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” [Matthew 18:3] Children are teachable and more apt to listen and obey; whereas adults are more set in their ways and not as willing to accept the messages of truth that are presented. Jesus restates that unless we become as little children, we will never enter the kingdom of heaven.1


Suddenly, I hear a song called, “His Sheep Am I” being sung. It is not angels singing or a choir. I turn around and see a multitude of children singing. They are divided into two groups. One group stands on the right and the other on the left. Each child wears a white robe. The bottom of each robe has a border that resembles a very bright light. I understand these are innocent, sinless children, before the age of accountability. As they sing the refrain, the left and right group alternate. These are the words I hear:


His Sheep Am I

In God's green pastures feeding by His cool waters lie;
Soft in the evening walk my Lord and I,
All the sheep of His pasture
Fare so wondrously fine; His sheep am I.


Left group: Waters cool,
Right group: In the valley;
Left group: Pastures green,
Right group: On the mountain,
Both groups: In the evening walk my Lord and I.

Left group: Dark the night,
Right group: In the valley,
Left group: Rough the way,
Right group: On the mountain,
Both groups: Step by step my Lord and I.*


As the song ends, Jesus shares that He gave all for His children. He has sent messages to His people. Those who are willing to listen to His voice will be provided fresh cool water and green pastures. They will receive His guidance, protection, and comfort. Those who walk contrary to the messages will suffer the wrath of God.


The first issue I am allowed to share now was revealed to me for the first time in February 2012. The Herald shows me Eve in the Garden of Eden. She has just transgressed the command given to not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The Herald explains that because of her sin, it was commanded that she was to follow the spiritual guidance of her husband. This was to apply to all wives from that point on, as long as the husband’s guidance agreed with God’s will. “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit [proper] in the Lord.” [Colossians 3:18.] The Herald further explains that they are still to be equal as man and wife, and that the wife is not to be under the husband, as in a dictatorship. Please note that when “husbands require the complete submission of their wives, declaring that women have no voice or will in the family, but must render entire submission, they place their wives in a position contrary to the Scripture.” [The Adventist Home, p. 116] “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church…and the wife see that she reverence [respects] her husband.” [Ephesians 5:25, 33.]


The Herald continues by stating that soon we will see Seventh-day Adventist conferences no longer following God’s directive that only men lead out as ordained pastors. I am told that God’s church will transgress His commands by ordaining women to serve as pastors.2 Along with this, we will witness the acceptance of homosexuality within the Seventh-day Adventist organization.3 Calling me by my heavenly name, the Herald reveals that these decisions, along with the accumulation of apostasy and spiritualism within God’s church, will lead to the chain of events that will bring on a call for Sunday observance.


I am now allowed to share what will happen in the future to those who condemn God’s messengers and messages; however, we are not to know when these things will happen. Soon God will command that the vials of His wrath be poured out. Jesus explains that there is a wind of doctrine that speaks about the coming destruction from God’s wrath as being a part of the seven trumpets. However, the sound of the seven trumpets refers to religious and political battles. A trumpet sound can also refer to a warning or announcement being given. God’s destruction in order to cleanse is symbolized by the pouring out of the vials.


Jesus points to the dark blue sky and I see the following words in large, bold, dark red letters. “The vials poured forth at His [God’s] command will be the pouring out of an alluvion of ruination,” an irrecoverable state of devastation.4


Next, Jesus requests that the Herald show me what he has been instructed to show. With the Herald standing behind me, Jesus explains the following. With the instructions that Seventh-day Adventists have been favored with, those who are unfaithful to the light should not be surprised when they are made to look to the darkness of the west for their lord and master. Referring to these unfaithful ones, Jesus now solemnly states, “I tell you this day, let their tongues wither and dry in their mouths. With the regret they will feel, let their tears stream from their eyes as acid dissolving their eyes and the skin of their face.5 Let their knees fail as they fall prostrate on the ground and worship Lucifer, the sun of the west, the one who once served as the light bearer in heaven. Let them now know they face the path of darkness.6 Those children who have believed and walked in true faith, unable to see the path they walk upon, will look to the east at the brightness of the Son, and be saved.”7


Jesus places my hand in the hand of the Herald and again tells him to show me the things he was instructed to show. He tells me to know that what I will be shown is what I have been shown many times over many months. It is repeated for clarification and exactness.


Jesus smiles, and with a special look on His face, He pauses and says, “Go with the angels!” As He says this, I immediately recall the dream, “The Lord’s Prayer,” where the wife tells her husband to “go with the angels.” I think about the many times when Jesus has said that if we need angels to ask for them, and they will be sent. Yet, I know He has said that He is always with us.


Taking my hand, the Herald and I are now in space, approaching Orion. Behind it is the corridor that opens out into God’s kingdom. The Holy City sits perfectly visible in the distance. As I look at its extreme beauty, even from a great distance, I hear the voice of God as I have heard it before. It is like a thunderous waterfall, a stream, and a trickle of water, all at the same time. He says, “I have watched as My Church has degraded from My blueprint. I have watched as the services to worship Me have become irreverent, and every possible form of evil has been brought into My earthly court. Many no longer worship Me, but instead worship him who rules the earth. This earth-ruler commands those whom he has deceived to worship in an unholy manner. I have witnessed as My commands have been transgressed. To those who serve as leaders in My Church, I have spoken a promise of what I will do if transgression continues. What I have poured forth before, I will pour forth again.”


Now the Herald and I return through the opening and quickly approach the blue earth once again. Now we are just a few hundred feet in the air above what I know to be the old Battle Creek Sanitarium. I watch as many angels descend from on high. They begin to pour out vials having a thick, pure, golden liquid over the Battle Creek Sanitarium.8


As I watch this large structure burn, I know that no device of man has the power to calm the fires of God’s wrath. I now rise higher in the air and watch the earth spin quickly. All the planets seem to move in a preplanned path. I understand that a little time has gone by. Then everything I see slows down and we descend once again. Again, the Herald and I are only a few hundred feet in the air above Battle Creek, Michigan. Angels approach the Review and Herald publishing house and pour out the same liquid over it.


The Herald tells me that he is to show me another example. He takes my right hand, and I find myself now standing along a rocky mountain path. I see a man and three women ascending the path that leads away from a city below. They are dressed in clothing from the Old Testament times. The Herald explains that I am observing Lot, his wife, and their two daughters leaving Sodom, as the angels instructed them to do.


Now the Herald draws my attention to what looks like swarms of bees, but I know they are angels rapidly descending upon the city of Sodom. The Herald requests one of the angels to come and show me his container, which is like what the other angels are carrying. As I look inside, I see what resembles the same liquid used by the angels for the Battle Creek fires. I notice it has a strange odor, like sulfur.9 The Herald tells the angel to go and do what God has commanded him to do. The angel quickly ascends and joins the army of angels sent from heaven. Quickly, many situate themselves a little distance above Sodom and begin to pour the liquid upon the city below. As people try to flee from Sodom, many angels quickly knock them to the ground, and pour the liquid over them. God’s wrath is being meted out.


As I stand observing what I am to report as a messenger, the Herald reminds me that Lot and his family were told not to turn around to look at the city behind them. However, now I see that Lot’s wife stops walking, as if deciding to see what is happening behind her. She turns around completely and faces Sodom. She watches as the angels descend from on high with the vials of God’s judgment. In an instant, her feet turn into a white, crystalline substance. This change continues upward; her eyes are the last to crystallize. They reveal her attachment to her beloved city, which is now being destroyed. Lot’s wife has turned into a pillar of salt. I watch as the wind blows, and very slowly erodes her form.


The Herald and I turn, ascend toward Orion, and again pass through the corridor that opens out into God’s kingdom and the Holy City. Once again I hear God’s voice, and as He speaks, I see these words clearly in view.


“As it is written in Ezekiel 9:4-11 ─ And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:  Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.  And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.  And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon Jerusalem? Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not.  And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.  And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded me.”10


Next, I hear God’s voice saying my heavenly name and that I stand as Elijah and John the Baptist. He says that I was named long before I was born and that I have been called to serve as His messenger. I am to record His message as follows: All Seventh-day Adventists who hear God’s voice must kneel and repent before the inkhorn is closed and the quill of opportunity is cast aside.11 All are to know that God will instruct His marking angels to inscribe a deep mark upon the foreheads of those who speak openly against the apostasy and spiritualism and the secret Jesuit leadership within the church.12 Unless they repent, those who will not receive God’s mark include the ones who have taken the names of His children from the records of His church, and those who condemn God’s messengers and messages.13


Then God will command His angels of destruction to deliver the reward to those Seventh-day Adventists who trample on His laws and commands. This will be a sign to those who teach the lie that God does not kill.14 It is through His love and mercy that He will end the lives of those who walk in sin.15 He will instruct His destroying angels to go forth and pour out the vials of His wrath.16 They are to begin at the heart of His church, the General Conference building in Maryland. That is also the place where those who wear “masks” sit and conceive ways to worship the sun of the west, the one who used to stand next to God’s throne, but decided to make war in heaven. These are the ones Ellen White spoke about when she mentioned spies in the conferences. These are the Jesuits who have infiltrated the Seventh-day Adventist denomination and worked their way into positions of authority. Notice the following:


I have sent warnings to many physicians and ministers, and now I must warn all our churches to beware of men who are being sent out to do the work of spies in our conferences and churches,--a work instigated by the father of falsehood and deception. Let every church-member stand true to principle. We have been told what would come, and it has come. The enemy has been working under a species of scientific devising, even as he worked in Eden. I can not specify all now, but I say to our churches, Beware of the representations coming from Battle Creek that would lead you to disregard the warnings given by the Lord about the effort to make that a great educational center. Let not your sons and daughters be gathered there to receive their education. Powerful agencies have been stealthily working there to sow the seeds of evil. Special Testimonies, Series A, No. 12, p. 9


God’s destroying angels will go to certain Seventh-day Adventist publishing houses, union and conference offices, hospitals, and schools. The angels are to show no pity or remorse. They are to destroy without reservation. They are not to spare, but must slay old and young, male and female, ignorant and highly educated, whether they are those who sit in high positions or low, whether they are the shepherds or the sheep. He will command His angels to destroy. When those who suffer begin to cry out, the angels are not to pity or show remorse.17 However, God’s angels are not to come close to any who have God’s mark. When they have finished, they are to return to the Holy City and report to God that they have done as He commanded.


Those who state harsh things against what God has commanded are to know that He instructed His prophet, Ellen White, to record these words:


When the Battle Creek Sanitarium was destroyed, Christ gave Himself to defend the lives of men and women. In this destruction God was appealing to His people to return to Him. And in the destruction of the Review and Herald office, and the saving of life, He makes a second appeal to them. He desires them to see that the miracle-working power of the Infinite has been exercised to save life, that every worker may have opportunity to repent and be converted. God says: "If they turn to Me, I will restore to them the joy of My salvation. But if they continue to walk in their own way, I will come still closer; and affliction shall come upon the families who claim to believe the truth, but who do not practice the truth, who do not make the Lord God of Israel their fear and their dread." Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 8, pp. 102-103


In the visions of the night I saw a sword of fire hung out over Battle Creek. Brethren, God is in earnest with us. I want to tell you that if after the warnings given in these burnings the leaders of our people go right on, just as they have done in the past, exalting themselves, God will take the bodies next. Just as surely as He lives, He will speak to them in language that they cannot fail to understand. God is watching us to see if we will humble ourselves before Him as little children. I speak these words now that we may come to Him in humility and contrition and find out what He requires of us. …


I was instructed that there was so manifest a disregard of the Word of God, given in the testimonies of His Holy Spirit, that the Lord would turn and overturn, visiting Battle Creek with His judgments. …
I am well aware of the conditions existing in both the Review and Herald Publishing Company and the Sanitarium. I have received instruction as to why these large buildings were destroyed by fire. I am sure that unless the management of these institutions is conducted more after God's order, there will be further revelations of God's displeasure. The Publishing Ministry, pp. 171-173 


Again, the heavenly Father asks His unfaithful shepherds and sheep to return to Him.18 Then He will lift up His countenance upon them. However, if they continue to walk in their own way, He will send affliction upon them, because they discredit the very truth they claim to believe. He asks that each one examine his own heart to know whether he has faith. Repent and be converted, so that your sins can be blotted out when the times of refreshing come from God’s presence. Discover how you have neglected to walk in the way God has marked out. How have you failed to heed the counsels He has given to purify your soul?19


Now all becomes quiet. I do not know whether much time has passed or if what happens next is immediate, but now I see many angels quickly exit the twelve gates of the Holy City. They resemble countless bees flying from a bee hive. The angels go past the Herald and I, and I see that they are holding vials containing a thick, golden liquid. The Herald and I return through the corridor and quickly approach the earth. Now we are a few hundred feet in the air looking down on the current General Conference building. The Herald breaks the silence and says that as God in the past commanded the destruction of the Battle Creek Sanitarium and the Review and Herald publishing house because of apostasy, know that for the same reason, He will destroy the General Conference building, certain publishing houses, union and conference offices, hospitals, and schools.20 Cursed be the ones who follow after their own light on their own path. God will fulfill the promise that He instructed Ezekiel to write.


I watch now as many angels descend from above and begin to pour out the vials over the General Conference building. The fire is so hot, that the glass façade instantly melts. I am now taken closer. I see individuals who are wearing what looks like white plaster masks. I now understand that these are Jesuits. As I watch them burn, I notice that their eyes reveal a blackness of pure evil. The angels now proceed to go through the burning building to pour out the vials on individuals who try to escape. I see many running out of the building, but as before, the destroying angels knock them to the ground and pour additional liquid over them. The angels are no respecters of persons or age. They continue to destroy, fulfilling what God has commanded.21


Now the Herald and I go to the Review and Herald Publishing Association in Hagerstown, Maryland. I watch the angels pour out the vials, and the building appears to melt from the intense heat of the flames, just as the original Review and Herald building burned in 1902. Following their instructions, the angels destroy those who are inside the building and those who flee outside. Again, they show no compassion or remorse. Everything is destroyed, from the strongest metal beam to the fishbowl on a desk. Yet the nearby trees, stores, and vehicles on the highway are unharmed.22


Next, I am taken to a conference office. In a subtle way, the apostasy taught by the conference leadership corrupted the churches, and that made it impossible for the Holy Spirit to be present there.23 Because of their union with Satan, all must be destroyed. Once again I see the vials poured out. The building and all inside are quickly consumed in the fires. Those who run from the building receive their measured portion of God’s wrath. The Herald reveals that what I see happening is also taking place at other conference offices around the world.24


We go to another conference office that is being destroyed. The Herald explains that not far from there is an office building that is not of the Seventh-day Adventist faith. Angels protect that building and its occupants from the fire, because they are living up to the light they have.25 Those in the Seventh-day Adventist conference office had no excuse. They were given all the light that was needed.


I am taken to the Loma Linda University Medical Center, a prestigious Seventh-day Adventist university and hospital that stands as a beacon in the medical field. It consists of many buildings that cover a large area. I see the destroying angels take their places at specific buildings, and all begin to pour out the vials at the same time. All the buildings, including everything and everyone inside, are consumed in the fires. The angels show no pity. Be it doctor, nurse, orderly, or patient, all are destroyed. This place of modern medicine is consumed in a fire consisting of a most intense heat.


Next, we are at another very large Seventh-day Adventist university. The angels of destruction take their positions over this facility and its many buildings. Simultaneously, they pour out the vials of God’s wrath, and the buildings are quickly consumed. Every professor, student, employee, and those who flee are destroyed by fire. As before, the angels show no pity or remorse. They have followed God’s orders.


Now I am shown additional Seventh-day Adventist universities, as well as colleges, academies, elementary schools, and preschools. The Herald tells me that the angels were instructed to show no pity toward the young either, just as it is written in Ezekiel 9. Why should it be a surprise? I watch as angels are positioned all over the earth, and while certain Seventh-day Adventist schools are in session, the vials are poured out. Buildings, teachers, and students, even the very young while they nap, are all consumed.


The time when the destruction is poured out on the General Conference, certain publishing houses, union and conference offices, hospitals, and schools is during the work week, when the buildings are full of employees, patients, or students. The destruction is worldwide.


The Herald and I now observe the destruction of many ministries, such as Breath of Life, Faith for Today, It Is Written, Voice of Prophecy, Three Angels Broadcasting Network (3ABN), and other language ministries, like La Voz de la Esperanza. These ministries know that they are required by the General Conference to send all tithes directly to their local conference, and only a small portion is returned to them. I think of how the General Conference teaches that the local conference is the only storehouse. However, this teaching does not agree with the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy.


I am reminded of the dream, “The Journey Home,” where it mentions how the Voice of Prophecy was helpful in bringing my family and me into the Seventh-day Adventist Church. How could a ministry once led by God veer so far away from the right path? How did a ministry that used to support the high standards of God’s church lower itself to meet the world’s criteria? How is it that they are now wallowing in the mud of apostasy?


I see Amazing Facts being consumed, just as I saw happen in the “Amazing Facts” dream. I remember that I was told in the dream, “Watch, as I Am Coming,” that Doug Batchelor and I were walking parallel roads, and that our roads would cross. I am made aware that this does not mean we would join together, but that our different paths would intersect. Only one path can be correct.


Some independent ministries that uphold the teachings and directions of the General Conference are also included in the destruction.


All these ministries and their employees are consumed in the cleansing fire of God’s wrath. The General Conference building, certain publishing houses, union and conference offices, hospitals, and schools are gone. The angels have obeyed God’s instructions, and now they return to heaven to report to Him that they have done as He commanded.


I am now taken up high where I see the earth spin quickly as before. The Herald and I descend and now observe a large Seventh-day Adventist church on Sabbath morning. It is one of many churches that have fallen deeply into apostasy. I am observing members arriving at the church to be entertained, not to hear a message spoken through the Holy Spirit. They are there to dance, sing, and visit. The members of this particular church do not hear the things that are spoken about in a repentant church.


The Herald and I enter the church, where we see an abomination called a worship service being conducted. I understand that no one has any excuse for these unholy worship practices. They have all been given light on how to worship. The pastors have no excuse, because they have been given specific instructions from the pen of Ellen White. Even the dream called, “Reverence My Sanctuary,” gave instructions on how to worship. However, it is too late now. Both time and opportunity have been given. Now each must stand for God’s judgments. As it has been written, none have an excuse.26


Across the universe, those beings who never fell into sin reverently gather to worship the Creator of the universe. In the courts of heaven, all gather in reverence to worship Him who sits on His sacred throne. Yet here on earth, many who call themselves Seventh-day Adventists have chosen to blow out the light, and now they stand in darkness for their reward. As the angels begin to pour out the vials, the Herald takes me to a place that will show me exactly why God needs to destroy with fire. He tells me that fire is the only way purification can take place.27 God’s Church needs to be purified. Those who survive the event prophesied by Ezekiel must be individuals whom God can use to continue to witness for the truth. Thus, they must be completely rooted and grounded in God’s Word and the Spirit of Prophecy.


We are now at the Mt. Rubidoux Seventh-day Adventist Church in Riverside, California. As I pass through the sanctuary, I hear the most appalling singing performed. The choir jumps and dances to the beat of the band ensemble on the platform. It is as if they are all actors on a stage.28 The singing and dancing performed by not only the choir, but also the members, is not done to God’s glory, but to glorify Satan, the one they are really worshipping. Even the pastor dances across the platform.29


The conference leaders should have spoken out against this church. I question whether this is really a Seventh-day Adventist church. The Herald says that this church is allowed to go on because the conference has seen a great increase in the collection of tithe and offerings.30 Racism is also a factor, because no white conference official wants to intervene and deal with the problems. They fear being called culturally insensitive or racist.31 Sadly, the black race has shown racial hypersensitivity since God pronounced a curse on the descendants of Ham. The Herald says to know that in heaven there is no race. Heavenly angels find it a disgrace that some painters depict them in different colors, as if angels had races. In order to be politically correct, these artists lower themselves to the standards of the world. However, God’s people must have a higher standard; they must be a peculiar people. God sent the following message through His prophet, Ellen White:


In heaven there will be no color line; for all will be as white as Christ himself. Let us thank God that we can be members of the royal family. {The Gospel Herald, March 1, 1901}


The Herald says that God’s judgments will come to this church, as well as to others. We rise into the air, and the angels descend upon this wicked house of worship. As the vials are poured out, none escape. The choir, drums, electric guitars, and other instruments are consumed. That horrible noise that was called worship is now replaced with the sounds of cleansing fire, falling embers, and burnt debris.


The Herald and I ascend higher into the air. It is Sabbath morning, and we see black smoke coming from many Seventh-day Adventist churches around the world.32 At the same time, I notice that some churches are not harmed. I see many who meet in small companies to worship God in the proper way. Many are home churches. Also, churches of other faiths are unharmed because they do not have the light yet.


I am now taken to a large body of water that looks like an ocean of pure glass. I suddenly realize that Jesus is standing next to me. He calls me by my heavenly name, points to the dark blue sky, and instructs that I record these words for all to read. The words are each a dark gold with a bright white edging.


Blessed Be the Ones

I turn and notice that wherever I look in the clear water, the words are perfectly reflected, as if in a mirror, yet the letters are not upside down. No matter where I look, I see His message clearly and perfectly.33 Jesus now asks how many wait for a sign before they will believe His messages. For many, their final proof will come in the blink of an eye. For these it will be too late. Jesus becomes quiet, looks down and back up, then says, “As I have asked many times before, will I find faith? Will I find faith before the evidence mounts?” Jesus takes my right hand, and as we begin to walk on the water, the words are always in front of us. As we walk, Jesus reveals that the faith He has asked of many, He sees in so few. He says that many are called, but few are chosen; many are called, but few choose. He shares how God has sent many messages through prophets. Yet they have been hated, some killed, lied about, and their messages quickly dismissed by most.


The dream changes, and we are now walking on one of the streets of gold in heaven. It is the same street where I walked with Jesus in my dream, “A View of Heaven.” Jesus shares that it was just “yesterday” that He walked along this street with me, promised that He would heal me, and asked that I share His messages. He explains how Satan came in and tried to destroy the messages, and how I fell and asked for forgiveness. He explains that He lifted me back up and again placed His mantle on me. He reminds me of how the critics quickly spread negative comments about me and how the church leadership quickly dismissed the messages I shared.


Jesus stops and reminds me that before I was conceived, my name Earnest, which means truth, had been chosen by God, as well as my role as a messenger for His Church. He explains that I am to serve as Elijah did in calling people to repentance. He says that I am also to serve as John the Baptist did and to give rebuke when instructed to. Just as John the Baptist prepared a people for His first coming, I am to prepare a people for His Second Coming.34


We begin walking again, and Jesus shares the following. He has asked if He will find faith when He returns. Many of God’s prophets have been asked to do things that others are never asked to do. These are signs of faith. Moses, Abraham, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Hosea, Elijah, and John the Baptist are some of the prophets who were asked to show faith. Jesus says that I have also shown faith by faithfully sharing God’s messages, which include rebukes.


We stop again, and Jesus turns to me and stresses that those who speak and take actions against God’s prophets, those who trample on their messages and spread lies and false accusations, will stand to receive His wrath.35 Soon His wrath will be poured out upon the face of the earth.


Next, Jesus refers to the critics mentioned by name in the first volume of the book, the TRUTH, the whole TRUTH, and nothing but the TRUTH. He says that those individuals still have time to confess and repent for speaking against God’s messages. If they do not and grieve away the Holy Spirit, then what I see next will take place. They have been asked many times and have had an opportunity to repent. However, because of self, pride, or position they will no longer be mentioned in my dreams and will stand to receive God’s wrath and judgments just like Korah, Dathan, Abiram and others when many witnessed the ground open and swallow them.36 Such will be the end of the critics, because they have spoken against God’s messages.


To those who will no longer be mentioned are to be added the names of Curtis Farnham, Chris Lewis (whose article on tithe was posted on Curtis Farnham’s, notaprophet website), as well as those who set future dates for last day events. If these do not repent, they will also stand to receive God’s wrath and judgments.


Jesus tells me to observe and record in detail what He now shows me. He points to a dark blue sky, and I am witnessing an event on the earth. The critics who have not repented are walking along together with others who have written and made comments against God’s messages given through the For My People Ministry. They are pleased and proud of what they have done. I now observe the following. One of them walks along with a large bag of money under his arm. I see another with a large Bible that has a locking strap around it. The lock is old, and the key is lost. The Bible has not been opened for quite some time. Another walks with a large white horse. One gets out of an airplane.  Another carries scrolls and books. Another carries a sign about how great he is. One waves a banner stating that Ernie Knoll is NOT A There is another person with clocks and sextants. One woman wears a dress with images of the moon. Another woman dresses like Ellen White in the 1800’s. As these and others walk along, they talk about their mission to dismiss the messages, myself, and this ministry.


Suddenly, the ground opens just a little, and each one is standing in a hole up to their ankles. They are separate from each other. They try to free themselves but are not able to. As they stand there for a little while, the ground suddenly opens and closes. They are now in the ground a little below their knees. As others run to rescue them, they also become trapped in the ground. Many stand at a distance in horror, because the ground now holds all these people.


 As time goes by, the ground is constantly shaking them back and forth. It looks as if the ground is hungry and literally devouring them. No one else nearby feels the earth moving, only those who are trapped. The bystanders are unable to help. Slowly, the ground continues to devour its victims, who now are held captive just a little above the knees. The more they try to free themselves, the harder the ground becomes around them. In some places it looks like they stand in the middle of a solid rock.


Many of those watching fall to their knees and beg for God’s mercy on those who are trapped. Many cry out that it was through one of those individuals that they were brought to Christ. Others mention all the great things another individual has done. However, just because someone does great things for God, does not mean they will be saved automatically. Notice the following Bible verse: “For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.” 2 Peter 2:21.


I now look up and see angels writing cloud-like letters in the sky. The words tell how each was given ample opportunity to approach God’s throne. Each one had been contacted personally by individuals who had written them, asking them to repent. Every once in a while the ground opens up then quickly closes, and all these individuals slide further down into the mouth of the earth.


As time progresses and the earth shakes, the individuals are covered to their waist. Then they are swallowed to their ribs. Moments later the ground opens and they are under the ground up to their necks. They each have time to contemplate the things they have said and done. Each knows that the final judgment is upon him or her. They had stood proudly to dismiss God’s messages and lead people away from the truth. Now the ground opens for the last time, and each one drops slowly down, buried in the earth.


I turn to Jesus, and He reminds me that the instruction the angels received in Ezekiel 9 was to show no remorse. It is the same for these who were not they. They were begged to ask forgiveness of their sins. Because they did not, God’s judgment was delivered to them. This is another example for those who teach the lie that God does not kill.


The scene changes, and once again, I am walking with Jesus on a large body of water that looks like an ocean of pure glass. I see these words in the sky:


Blessed Be the Ones
who Believe Before
the Evidence Mounts


Jesus again says how many wait for a sign before they will believe. For many it will be too late. Jesus becomes quiet. He looks down then back up, and this time there are tears in His eyes. He asks, “Will I find faith before the evidence mounts?” Of all the times I have been with Jesus, I had never seen Him cry. The horrible event of what I just saw has caused Him to cry, because He died on the cross for those individuals. I stand there now watching my Jesus, my Brother cry. I want to reach up and wipe the tears from His face, but I know I cannot. I know that no angel can wipe the tears from His face.


With tears still in His eyes, He points up to what is written in the sky and He writes it again. The only thing that changes is the lettering color. I now see the letters in pure, solid gold. Behind each of these letters is a larger, blue letter. Behind each of the gold and blue letters are larger, white letters. All these are written against a dark blue sky. Again, I see the words:


Blessed Be the Ones
who Believe Before
the Evidence Mounts


Again, I turn and notice that wherever I look in the clear water, the words are perfectly reflected as if in a mirror, yet the letters are not upside down. No matter where I look I see His message clearly and perfectly.


Again with tears, Jesus repeats that many will stand waiting for a sign before they believe, and before the evidence mounts. For many it will be too late when they see their proof. Jesus stands very quietly.


The Herald, who has been standing behind me, takes my hand and we now see from up high what happens after God’s wrath is poured out on His Church. I see smoke rising from where there were once buildings. I know that the destruction was not from an atomic weapon, but rather a device of God. It was a consuming fire that burned from the inside and left nothing but ashes, which begin to blow in the wind. On the ground are bodies in the form of ashes. There is nothing left to bury.


Next, I am taken to where I view a very large television screen. There are news reports and talk shows about the devastation that occurred. It is reported that only Seventh-day Adventist institutions and those in them were destroyed. Everyone is calling it the wrath of God. Several stations broadcast how non-Adventist buildings next to those destroyed were unharmed. As I look down, I see a popular news magazine. The front cover shows a photo of the ashen remains of the Seventh-day Adventist General Conference world headquarters. The caption reads, “God’s Wrath Upon an Evil Cult.” The smaller print mentions how God has poured out His wrath upon a cult that refuses to worship on God’s holy day, Sunday. Looking around, I see national and international news stories that state the same thing.


The Herald and I rise a little further in the air, and he explains that what I see now is a quick succession over several weeks. I see Adventist churches that were not harmed. Many of the members flee from the churches.37 Places are set up where those surviving members can request to have their membership transferred to the Sunday church of their choice. Talk shows interview certain members, who mention how they were deceived into believing the Adventist teachings. They state that now they understand that because of God’s wrath they need to keep the Sabbath holy on the first day of the week. I am shocked as I see those who I recognize who once stood as speakers for the Adventist church and proclaimed the true, biblical, seventh-day Sabbath. They now spit upon the Seventh-day Adventist name. The Herald turns to me and says how that name was inspired through the Holy Spirit. That name is not just a name on a building. Buildings can be destroyed, but no one can destroy the name written on the hearts of God’s true believers. Those individuals will also have God’s name written on their foreheads.


Now I look down at Adventist churches around the world that speak different languages. Members flee from them, remove the Seventh-day Adventist name from their hearts, and write another name. I look to the Herald and ask if there is no one who will have the Seventh-day Adventist name on their hearts. He says to look closely. As I look back down, I see small groups meeting in homes, in rented churches, or in those Adventist churches that were not harmed. The Herald tells me that these are the remnant of the remnant. These are God’s people who will not bow to false teachings. They faithfully studied the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy for themselves.38


As Jesus said, “Many are called, but few are chosen. Many are called, but few choose.” Our Father has His people, even though they are few. It will be through them that He will do a mighty work. The Herald states that soon the world will have an opportunity to make their eternal decision. Each will clearly be given a chance to choose between eternal darkness and eternal light. This will be the great shaking, and only the perfect and wholesome wheat will be left. They are the ones whom God can use. The chaff is not useful. The wheat will sow a crop that God can harvest. It is through a purification, through the molding, sifting, and shaking process that God will have a pure church. Though they are few, they will be empowered through the Holy Spirit to do a great work for God.


Again the Herald and I go higher into the air and watch the earth spin very quickly. When we descend, I notice that many in the United States, including former Seventh-day Adventist leaders and speakers, have made a call to worship on the first day of the week. To promote Sunday worship, laws have been made to keep stores closed on Sunday. On that day, all unnecessary work is prohibited, and everyone is encouraged to worship. As more and more people promote keeping Sunday holy, the movement expands to the rest of the world, and great events are televised to promote it.


Once again, the Herald takes me higher and I watch the earth spin quickly, then slow down to its normal speed. He informs me that now he will show me something that will fulfill an unconditional promise. However, no one is to know the date when it will happen.


We descend to a rocky area near the ancient city of Jerusalem. Worldwide television stations have set up cameras to broadcast a special event. Several news reporters announce that the world stands ready for the unveiling of the newly-discovered Ark of the Covenant. Stations present programs on its history, and there is much excitement and discussion. Many speculate regarding the validity and condition of such a great archeological find. As the exact time nears for the Ark to be brought out from its hiding place, the world is focused on the news. Suddenly, we hear an announcement that there is movement deep inside the cave from where the Ark will be carried out for the world to see. Four men are seen slowly and very carefully carrying out the Ark.39 The man on the right front corner of the Ark is holding a package in his right hand that contains a video. The Ark is very bright, shiny, and clean. Along each of the two longest sides of the Ark, there is a long pole. The four men carry the Ark by holding onto the ends of the poles. Next, they all stand before a large cluster of microphones. I notice that armed guards quickly surround the Ark and the four men.


One at a time, each of the four men speaks. They do not talk about themselves but rather about the items they have brought out. They mention that Ron Wyatt, an archeologist from the United States, discovered the Ark and video recorded his find. One of the same four men assured Ron that his video would be shown worldwide.


A journalist now asks for the names of the four men. As if of one mind, the first man says, “Who we are,” and the second man says, “is not important.” The third man says, “The only name that all should have on their lips is,” and the fourth individual says, “Jesus, Jesus Christ.” Then in one voice, all four men simultaneously state, “The most wonderful, the most beautiful name in all the universe.”


Another journalist asks what is inside the Ark. One of the men responds that they will open the Ark for the world to see. Another one states that on top of the Ark is the blood that flowed from the side of Jesus while He hung upon the cross and a soldier thrust a spear into His side. Another says that Ron took a sample of the dried blood to a laboratory for testing, and he goes on to share the test results.40


Then each of the four men go to a corner of the Ark and lift off the lid. Reaching inside, one of the men brings out a large, rectangular stone, and another brings out a second stone. Each holds the stone in front of himself. The other two men stand to their left and right. As I observe the two tablets of stone, which are the Ten Commandments, I notice distinct engraving on each one. The lettering looks as if someone had used their finger to write on softened butter. The first letter of each commandment is larger and more deeply engraved. The first tablet displays the first three commandments in a dark purple light. The second tablet displays the last six commandments in a dark blue light. Looking back at the first tablet, I notice that the first three commandments are separated from the fourth commandment, which appears written in a very bright, white light. Now all the colors become brighter.


Commenting on the Ten Commandments, a news reporter states that they appear to be written in ancient Hebrew. Suddenly, those who are looking at the tablets, whether in person or through the media, notice that they can read the letters in their own language. These Ten Commandments, written by the holy finger of God Himself, are understood by every living soul who is watching anywhere on earth.


After a little time passes, the last six commandments and then the first three become less bright. However, the fourth commandment becomes brighter and larger in size, and everyone keeps his eyes fixed on it. The letters continue to become a brighter white.


Next, I am made to know that people in other parts of the world who are sleeping are being shown what is transpiring while they sleep. Many wake up and watch the news on television or via the Internet. Others who do not have that opportunity, such as those camping in the wilderness, in prison, and even the blind, are enabled to see clearly what the fourth commandment states.


“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.”


No man, woman, or child on earth, regardless of age or education, will be able to say that he or she had no knowledge of God’s Ten Commandments, especially the fourth. The first three show how we are to reverence God, and the last six show how we are to treat each other. However, the fourth commandment speaks about our Creator and the day that will be kept holy throughout eternity.


The scene changes, and the Herald and I are standing next to a small stream. He looks down into a valley and beyond, and states that the world will need to make a decision based on what has just been witnessed. That decision will determine their future. For each one it will mean eternal life or eternal death. The Herald mentions that I have already seen that very many Seventh-day Adventists will flee, even from the churches that remain unharmed. He explains that this is the shaking and sifting needed to purify God’s church. He states that Ellen White wrote that the Seventh-day Adventist Church is not Babylon, and that it will not fall. God’s Church will flourish.


The Herald mentions that God has and will have a prepared people, whether they worship at home, in a company of believers, or in a church that does not give in to the demands of corrupt members or leaders. They may meet together with many, in a small group, or even as only a few. Yet they are to know that the Holy Spirit will be there to guide them. These are God’s people armed and ready to war against Satan and his army.


I am now taken to see those who have God’s mark. They are teaching the truth about what the world just witnessed. They explain that it is time to decide to follow God for eternity or to follow man for a short while. They teach that those who choose eternity with God will find the earthly road difficult to walk on. Those who choose man’s laws and follow the world’s teachings have chosen a smooth road, but it leads downward to eternal death.


As God’s faithful people continue teaching truth, some travel great distances in a very short time, just as the Bible describes that Philip did. He traveled about 30 miles from Gaza to Ashdod (Azotus) in an instant. God’s faithful will work with the power and might of the Holy Spirit, just like the apostles of Jesus. They will go out armed with the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. They will have the faith that Jesus asked for, before the evidence was revealed. They have believed God’s messages and now proclaim them to the world. These are the ones who stand in battle to defend God’s name before the universe, and to testify that His laws can and will be kept.


Time goes by quickly as these faithful ones witness to large crowds of people. Those who are convicted to follow the truth decide to claim the title of Seventh-day Adventist, and God writes that name upon their hearts. At the same time, Satan and those who have committed their lives to follow him have been busy preparing laws that go against God’s laws. Those who keep the seventh-day Sabbath are considered as opposing the teachings of the Roman church that has set up guidelines for Sunday observance.


Next, a call is made that those who keep Saturday holy are not to be allowed to buy or sell. Quickly an identification (ID) card is introduced to allow only registered Sunday keepers to buy and sell. Credit, debit and gift cards, checks, cash, gold, or silver—any form of payment—is accepted only if an ID card is shown. The card is also needed to pay bills. Those who live in the country, who have a garden and their house and land paid for, are able to provide for themselves temporarily. However, once the card is required by law and their property tax is due, they will be unable to keep their land.41 Many decide to get the card, but privately state that they will worship on Saturday in secret. In public they will keep Sunday; they choose to keep God’s day, as well as man’s day. I am now reminded how Jesus has asked many times, “Will I find faith?”42


Soon, those who do not keep Sunday holy are called terrorists, extremists, and non-conformists, and people are encouraged to report them to the authorities. They are arrested and placed in prison or in concentration camps to be re-educated. Those who refuse to be re-educated will not be provided food. All their belongings will be taken away from them. At first they will be together with family members, then the spouses will be separated and the children will be taken away. The authorities remind the faithful that God destroyed Seventh-day Adventist facilities, as well as their employees, students, or members. They are told that God took out His wrath on a church that did not observe the first day of the week, and that those who worship on Sunday are being taken care of. I know that God did not destroy the Seventh-day Adventists for Sabbath observance, but rather for transgressing His Word. He destroyed corrupted institutions. I am shocked to see many give up and choose to observe Sunday. Yet, I also see those who know that it is worthwhile to surrender all for Jesus. It is quickly decided that those who choose to ignore the directions of the world’s leaders are to be persecuted and/or killed.


As shown in the dream “Stand Fast,” many will have to stand in the line where they will surrender all. I am now shown Revelation 20:4.


“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”


I know that these will be the ones who fulfill what God has written. Each one will stand before the universe as a witness. These will be called from their temporary grave to meet with Jesus in the air. Then they will take their places on thrones next to God in heaven. These had God’s name engraved in their foreheads, and on their hearts was written the name that God had given to His church─Seventh-day Adventist.


I now contemplate the difference between those who stand in line as they surrender all and those who simply play church. Their evil worship practices cannot compare to the way the angels of heaven worship. There is no comparison between those Seventh-day Adventists who fled from the burning buildings and those who stand firm for the truth. God’s followers will stand upon the wall of the New Jerusalem to witness Satan’s followers as they stand to receive their punishment. What a contrast between those in Satan’s army who seek to gain all and those in God’s army who surrender all.


The Herald now takes me into the vastness of space within the black veil. Yet even there I see a beauty that is hard to put into words. He reminds me that Ellen White was shown much. Some of the things she was shown were not shared publicly or only shared with specific individuals. This has been the case for me, as well. One of the things Ellen White was shown was that at the very end, God would raise up a prophet who had been named long before he was born. She was instructed not to mention the individual, but his first name, Earnest, and its meaning, truth, were written in the following statement, as well as the fact that he would not be accepted by many.


Prophecy must be fulfilled. The Lord says, "Behold, I send you Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." Somebody is to come in the spirit and power of Elijah, and when he appears, men may say, "You are too earnest, you do not interpret the Scriptures in the proper way. Let me tell you how to teach your message."  There are many who cannot distinguish between the work of God and that of man. I shall tell the truth as God gives it to me, and I say now, If you continue to find fault, to have a spirit of variance, you will never know the truth. The Review and Herald, February 18, 1890


The Herald says that most believe that Ellen White was referring to herself in this statement. While she did teach in the spirit and power of Elijah, she was not the prophet for the very end. The Herald reminds me that people have stated that I do not understand the messages I have been given, so they try to correct me. One example comes from the “Stand Fast” dream that mentions the topic of tithe. The leaders immediately claimed that I did not understand this subject, and gave their own interpretation.


The Herald also reminds me about what I recorded in the dream, “The Journey Home.”


I turn to look forward, and the angel tells me that I am being shown something so that I can understand. It is a symbolic example of one of the many things that our Father has planned for those throughout the universe. As we travel, I see what I can only explain as God’s omnipotence. He can do anything with just a word. He now places what looks like all the galaxies throughout the universe in a straight line. His brightness illuminates the universe and we admire how colorful it is. It is as if God has decorated the universe for this grand coronation of the redeemed. There appears to be a row of galaxies on the left and right side of the cloud we are on. It also looks like planets have been extracted from these galaxies and placed next to the galaxies. I now see that God has invited the created beings from these planets to stand next to their planets to observe the coronation.


The Herald reminds me that I am not to post the dreams until I am instructed to. Also, he reminds me that I was shown in a dream that when Jesus was raised from the tomb, the Father instructed beings from other planets to begin gathering fruit and taking it to the planet where the redeemed will enjoy a Sabbath meal on their seven-day trip to heaven. I also shared this at my meetings. I explained that the food has been sitting there for almost 2000 years, but it is as fresh as if it had just been picked. Even though this dream had not been posted when I shared this, many now serve as witnesses.43


The Herald now shares that he will show me for the third time what I have seen before, but more details will be added. The first time was in the dream, “At the Table,” dated May 12, 2005. I was shown additional details in the dream, “The Journey Home,” dated May 12, 2011. Here is what I was shown:


I find myself reclining on my side at a very, very long table. I look across the table and see my mother who is also reclining. My little brother, who died when two years old, is sitting on her lap. He has been placed back in the arms of my faithful mother. I instantly recall her studying the Voice of Prophecy Bible lessons that led her to join the Seventh-day Adventist Church. My brothers and I became Seventh-day Adventists because of her faithful instruction. This is why she now sits at this table. To her right, I see a few of my brothers. To her left is my father. To his left are several of my uncles. We talk and laugh.


As I sit there, I feel unworthy to wear my crown and robe. I remove my robe and lay it next to me. I take off my crown and hand it to my mother. I tell her that I want her to have it, because if it were not for her prayers, I would not be there. She looks at my crown and tells me that she has a crown of her own. Taking it off, she points to some of the stars and says that these represent her sons. She points to one star and tells me, “This star represents you. It represents my prayers while I was with you and the petitions that God would be with you when I could not.” She states that she is most pleased with her crown, that no one else will wear it, and that she will not wear anyone else’s crown. After placing her crown back on her head and picking up my crown, she shows that my crown is different from hers, just as each crown is different from all other crowns. She explains that my crown defines my walk with Jesus and that I am to wear it because He gave it to me. As she hands it back to me, I notice its appearance for the first time. It is made so that many crowns fit inside the crown. Many jewels cover the crown, and light shining through illuminates the jewels and emits a very bright light. I place my crown back on my head, but I still feel unworthy to wear it.


As I look to the left and right of the table, I see people of different sizes. Some are very tall. I notice that because I am reclining, I cannot see the end of the table in either direction. Looking down at the table in front of me, I see my heavenly name. It is not made of letters but of perfect, bright gold symbols that look engraved and are raised a little above the surface of the table. As I look at my new name, I realize it describes my character, and I repeat to myself, “That describes me; that describes me.”


I now hear the most beautiful sound coming from up in the air to my left. I see what I can only describe as long, iridescent birds flying through the air. I do not notice any wings. They sing a most beautiful song in four notes at the same time. It seems that I have only been sitting at the table for a very short time; yet I do not know how long it has been. Before us is a wide selection of fruits, nuts, leaves, and flowers. I understand that even the leaves and flowers are provided as food.


I now notice the angel who has been standing behind me and to the right. He is the same angel who walked and talked with me on the cloud. He wears a white robe, and his appearance is very noble. He has a kind, gentle smile. I tell him that I now understand he is my guardian angel. I tell him how sorry I am for all that I put him through on earth and that he had to watch me sin. I try to recall my sins, but I cannot. In a gentle voice, he says that I do not need to worry or mention anything about it, because all that is in the past. He explains that when you are forgiven, God forgets your sins.


My guardian angel places his left hand on my right shoulder, and with his right hand, he motions to the right. He says that Jesus, the Great Host, would have done all that was needed to have me at the table to serve me.


And now in this dream, I look to the far right of the heavenly table and see Jesus filling the goblets. I notice a goblet on the table in front of me. I pick it up to examine it more closely. It is crafted of pure gold. Throughout it are colored jewels that match the jewels on my crown. I see my new name inscribed on a pure diamond inlaid across the middle of my goblet that emits a bright, yellowish gold light. The jewels in each person’s goblet match the jewels in his crown. Each will have his own new name engraved on his goblet. Since those who lived before the Flood were much larger in size than we are today, their crowns and goblets are made to fit their size.


I put my goblet back in its place. Looking up, I see Jesus standing directly in front of me. He reaches down and picks up my goblet. I glance to the left and right, and somehow I see Jesus standing before each reclining person. He is serving them all at the same time. I look back up into those eyes that have such peace, and I see the love of the love of the love. As I look up at Him and He looks at me, I hear Him say these words, “This grape juice represents My blood.” He pauses before pouring the juice into my goblet. Then He says, “Not a drop of My blood was wasted on the earth, but was placed on the seat of mercy.”


Suddenly, I feel the Herald’s hand on my right shoulder, and find that I am slowly ascending. As I look down at the table, I am able to look further down to the left and right of it. I still do not see the end of the table. As we slowly continue to ascend, I am amazed at all the people I see reclining at the table. I notice that the table is located next to the wall inside the Holy City. Those who are closest to the wall look across the table at those reclining, and behind them is the Holy City. Those who recline with their backs toward the Holy City look across the table at those reclining, and behind them is a view of the most amazing and beautifully colored wall. The jewels that make up the wall are hard to describe. Each person is happy with the place chosen for them at the table.


As I see those who lived during the days of Adam and Eve, I wonder who I would enjoy being next to at the table. Would it be Adam and Eve, Moses, Abraham and Sarah, Joseph, Noah, David, Elijah, Daniel, John, Joseph and Mary, or Paul? The list could go on and on. I marvel at those of great stature, compared to those who lived after the Flood.44


We slowly continue to ascend, and from that height I realize that the table continues along and beside each of the four walls within the New Jerusalem. It is one continuous table that curves around each corner of the Holy City. It is now that I see the ends of the table curve and continue on. Each person’s heavenly name is not only engraved on their goblet, but also on the table where they recline. It is here that Jesus said to everyone at the same time that the grape juice represents His blood, and that not a drop of it was wasted on the earth, but was placed on the seat of mercy. He tells His beloved children to take the grape juice and to drink it.45 Then He says that the food represents His body that was broken for us, and to take the food and eat it.46


My thoughts turn to Jesus and His disciples gathered in the upper room at the last supper. At that point, His work of redemption would soon begin. Now I am observing those for whom He gave His all. Now I am seeing His redeemed in heaven. They are reclining on both sides of the table. They are feasting at their first supper.

  2. Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 3, p. 295 God distinguished Aaron by choosing him and his male posterity for the priesthood.

  3. Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

    Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

    Mark 10:6-8 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

    Manuscript Releases, Vol. 8, p. 168 Not one particle of Sodomitish impurity will escape the wrath of God at the execution of the judgment. Those who do not repent of and forsake all uncleanness will fall with the wicked. Those who become members of the royal family and form God's kingdom in the earth made new will be saints, not sinners. Isaiah 30:1-3, 8-16.

  4. It [sulfur] burns with a blue flame that emits sulfur dioxide…. Molten sulfur assumes a dark red color above 200 °C. [392 °F]

  5. When sulfur burns in the air, it produces sulfur dioxide. In water, this gas produces sulfurous acid and sulfites…. However, at high concentrations these acids harm the lungs, eyes or other tissues. Sulfur trioxide … and sulfuric acid are similarly highly corrosive, due to the strong acids that form on contact with water. Concentrated sulfuric acid has a very strong affinity for water. It is sometimes used as a drying agent and can be used to dehydrate (chemically remove water from) many compounds, e.g., carbohydrates. … The acid reacts similarly with skin, cellulose, and other plant and animal matter.

    When the concentrated acid mixes with water, large amounts of heat are released; enough heat can be released at once to boil the water and spatter the acid.

  6. Matthew 6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

    The Review and Herald, July 16, 1914 We are to enter into no confederacy with those who do not love or fear God. Those who have not the light of present truth, who are unable to endure the seeing of him who is invisible, are surrounded by spiritual darkness that is as the darkness of midnight.

    Last Day Events, p. 182 Some had been shaken out and left by the way. The careless and indifferent, who did not join with those who prized victory and salvation enough to perseveringly plead and agonize for it, did not obtain it, and they were left behind in darkness, and their places were immediately filled by others taking hold of the truth and coming into the ranks.

    The broken ranks will be filled up by those represented by Christ as coming in at the eleventh hour. There are many with whom the Spirit of God is striving. The time of God's destructive judgments is the time of mercy for those who [now] have no opportunity to learn what is truth.

  7. The Signs of the Times, March 16, 1882 New truth is constantly unfolding; at every step, new and clearer light is shining upon the pathway of God's people, that they may go onward and upward…. Thousands are living on in guilty unconsciousness of their sin and danger, despising the Saviour's warnings, treating his ambassadors with contempt, and their words as idle tales.

  8. At room temperature, sulfur is a soft bright yellow solid.

  9. Luke 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Although sulfur is blamed for the smell—, e.g. of rotten eggs— elemental sulfur has only the faintest odor (the odor associated with rotten eggs is actually due to hydrogen sulfide and organic sulfur compounds).

  10. 1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

    Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 5, p. 211 The class who do not feel grieved over their own spiritual declension, nor mourn over the sins of others, will be left without the seal of God. The Lord commissions His messengers, the men with slaughtering weapons in their hands: "Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house."

    Here we see that the church--the Lord's sanctuary--was the first to feel the stroke of the wrath of God. The ancient men, those to whom God had given great light and who had stood as guardians of the spiritual interests of the people, had betrayed their trust. They had taken the position that we need not look for miracles and the marked manifestation of God's power as in former days. Times have changed. These words strengthen their unbelief, and they say: The Lord will not do good, neither will He do evil. He is too merciful to visit His people in judgment. Thus "Peace and safety" is the cry from men who will never again lift up their voice like a trumpet to show God's people their transgressions and the house of Jacob their sins. These dumb dogs that would not bark are the ones who feel the just vengeance of an offended God. Men, maidens, and little children all perish together.

    The Ellen G. White 1888 Materials, p. 1303 The men who are not connected with God have done many things after the imagination of their own evil hearts. The Lord declares concerning them, "They have turned unto Me their back, and not the face, though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them; yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction." We are amid the perils of the last days, the time will soon come when the prophecy of Ezekiel 9 will be fulfilled; that prophecy should be carefully studied, for it will be fulfilled to the very letter. Study also the tenth chapter which represents the hand of God as at work to bring perfect method and harmonious working into all the operations of his prepared instrumentalities. The eleventh and twelfth chapters also should receive critical, thoughtful attention. Let these prophecies be studied on your knees before God; unless you take up the stumbling-blocks which by your own perverse spirit you have laid in the way of many who have been connected with you, God will turn His face utterly from you and your associates.
  11. The Bible Echo, February 1, 1897 But before the Lord punishes men for their iniquity, He sends them a message of warning. Before He visits them with His judgments, He gives them a chance to repent.

  12. Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

    Manuscript Releases, Vol. 18, p. 370 Notice particularly [that] the sighing and crying ones are alone marked. Those who have engaged in afflicting their souls before God are especially remembered of Him, and the angel is bidden to place a mark upon them. 1 Peter 5:5-9.

    Manuscript Releases, Vol. 21, p. 52 What is the seal of the living God, which is placed in the foreheads of His people? It is a mark which angels, but not human eyes, can read; for the destroying angel must see this mark of redemption. 

  13. Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers, p. 445 Only those who, in their attitude before God, are filling the position of those who are repenting and confessing their sins in the great anti-typical day of atonement, will be recognized and marked as worthy of God's protection.

  14. 1 Samuel 2:6 The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.

    Amos 4:10 Your young men have I slain with the sword … yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

    Christ Triumphant, p. 77 Were the inhabitants of the old world who perished in the Flood punished for their disobedience of God’s requirements? Or were they washed by the waters of the deluge straight into glory because our merciful God is too good to execute the final penalty of transgressing His law? Were the Sodomites punished for their disobedience and only Lot saved? Or were the inhabitants of Sodom winged by the fire that fell from heaven straight into glory?

  15. Manuscript Releases, Vol. 12, pp. 207-209 God's love is represented in our day as being of such a character as would forbid His destroying the sinner. Men reason from their own low standard of right and justice. "Thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself" (Psalm 50:21). They measure God by themselves. They reason as to how they would act under the circumstances and decide God would do as they imagine they would do....

    In no kingdom or government is it left to the lawbreakers to say what punishment is to be executed against those who have broken the law. All we have, all the bounties of His grace which we possess, we owe to God. The aggravating character of sin against such a God cannot be estimated any more than the heavens can be measured with a span. God is a moral governor as well as a Father. He is the Lawgiver. He makes and executes His laws. Law that has no penalty is of no force.

    The plea may be made that a loving Father would not see His children suffering the punishment of God by fire while He had the power to relieve them. But God would, for the good of His subjects and for their safety, punish the transgressor. God does not work on the plan of man. He can do infinite justice that man has no right to do before his fellow man. Noah would have displeased God to have drowned one of the scoffers and mockers that harassed him, but God drowned the vast world. Lot would have had no right to inflict punishment on his sons-in-law, but God would do it in strict justice.

  16. Hebrews 10:30-31 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

    The Desire of Ages, p. 700 Under God the angels are all-powerful. On one occasion, in obedience to the command of Christ, they slew of the Assyrian army in one night one hundred and eighty-five thousand men.

  17. Manuscript Releases, Vol. 13, p. 123 The Lord has marked every movement made by the leading men in our institutions and conferences. It is a perilous thing to reject the light that God sends. To Chorazin and Bethsaida heaven's richest blessings had been freely offered. Day after day the Prince of life had gone in and out among them. The Glory of God, which prophets and kings had longed to see, had shone upon them. But they refused the heavenly Gift, and of them the Saviour said: [Luke 10:13, 14, quoted.]

    So today upon those who have had light and evidence, but who have refused to heed the Lord's warnings and entreaties, heaven's woe is pronounced.

    The Lord bore long with the perversity of Israel, but the time came when the people passed the boundaries, and fearful punishment fell upon those who, having had great light, refused to repent and be converted, that Christ should heal them. 

  18. Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 8, p. 101 Many who were once firm believers in the truth have become careless in regard to their spiritual welfare and are yielding, without the slightest opposition, to Satan's well-laid plots.

  19. Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 5, p. 94 The sin of ancient Israel was in disregarding the expressed will of God and following their own way according to the leadings of unsanctified hearts. Modern Israel are fast following in their footsteps, and the displeasure of the Lord is as surely resting upon them.

    Manuscript Releases, Vol. 21, p. 380 We are in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted, and filled with every foul spirit, a cage for every unclean and hateful bird; and will we be clear unless we make decided movements to cure the existing evil?

    Manuscript Releases, Vol. 21, p. 385 …unless there is a cleansing of the soul temple on the part of many who claim to believe and to preach the truth, God's judgments, long deferred, will come. These debasing sins have not been handled with firmness and decision. There is corruption in the soul, and, unless it is cleansed by the blood of Christ, there will be apostasies among us that will startle you.

  20. Hosea 4:9 And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.

    Amos 3:13-15 Hear ye, and testify in the house of Jacob, saith the Lord GOD, the God of hosts, That in the day that I shall visit the transgressions of Israel upon him I will also visit the altars of Bethel: and the horns of the altar shall be cut off, and fall to the ground. And I will smite the winter house with the summer house; and the houses of ivory shall perish, and the great houses shall have an end, saith the LORD.

  21. Matthew 22:1-7 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

    Counsels to Writers and Editors, pp. 95-96 Worldly policy is taking the place of the true piety and wisdom that comes from above, and God will remove His prospering hand from the conference. Shall the ark of the covenant be removed from this people? Shall idols be smuggled in? Shall false principles and false precepts be brought into the sanctuary? Shall antichrist be respected? Shall the true doctrines and principles given us by God, which have made us what we are, be ignored?

    Selected Messages, Book 1, pp. 204-205 The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-day Adventists, and that this reformation would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. Were this reformation to take place, what would result? The principles of truth that God in His wisdom has given to the remnant church, would be discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last fifty years would be accounted as error. A new organization would be established. Books of a new order would be written. A system of intellectual philosophy would be introduced. The founders of this system would go into the cities, and do a wonderful work. The Sabbath of course, would be lightly regarded, as also the God who created it. Nothing would be allowed to stand in the way of the new movement. The leaders would teach that virtue is better than vice, but God being removed, they would place their dependence on human power, which, without God, is worthless. Their foundation would be built on the sand, and storm and tempest would sweep away the structure. 

  22. Counsels to Writers and Editors, p. 96 Shall God's instrumentality, the publishing  house, become a mere political, worldly institution? This is directly where the enemy, through blinded, unconsecrated men, is leading us.

    These things have gone as far as they should without someone protesting against them in plain words. The Lord's time to set things in order has fully come.

  23. Malachi 2:7-9, 11, 17 For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts. But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts. Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.

    Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the LORD which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god.

    Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?

  24. Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers, p. 373 I appeal to my brethren to wake up. Unless a change takes place speedily, I must give the facts to the people; for this state of things must change; unconverted men must no longer be managers and directors in so important and sacred work. With David we are forced to say, "It is time for Thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void Thy law." [Psalm 119:126]

  25. The Signs of the Times, February 21, 1878 Everything has been done for them that the Majesty of heaven in his wisdom can do, but like the Jews they pervert and abuse their sacred privileges, and are satisfied to be fruitless cumberers of the ground, no better than worldlings as far as good works are concerned. But the worldlings are in a more favorable condition before God because they make no pretension to true godliness. They are not hypocritical pretenders.… It is sad to acknowledge that the daily lives of many who profess to be followers of Christ deny in their unsanctified words and actions the very religion they profess…. They have no connection with God.

  26. The Review and Herald, December 23, 1890 The sinners in Zion should be afraid, in a time when they do not expect it, sudden destruction will surely come upon all who are at ease.

    The Holy Spirit strives to make apparent the claims of God, but men pay heed only for a moment, and turn their minds to other things: Satan catches away the seeds of truth; the gracious influence of the Spirit of God is effectually resisted. Thus many are grieving away the Holy Spirit for the last time, and they know it not.

    The words spoken by Christ of Jerusalem are, "Your house is left unto you desolate." What anguish of soul did Jesus feel when all his appeals, his warnings and reproofs, were resisted! …

    Will the church see where she has fallen?

  27. Leviticus 10:1-2 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.

    The Signs of the Times, June 27, 1900 The whole earth is defiled. The curse is increasing as transgression increases. The earth is preparing for purification by fire.

  28. Evangelism, p. 396 We are to keep as far from the theatrical and the extraordinary as Christ kept in His work. Sensation is not religion, although religion will exert its own pure, sacred, uplifting, sanctifying influence, bringing spiritual life, and salvation.

    Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers, p. 345 There are long councils for devising plans, inventing new methods. There is a constant effort to get up entertainments to draw people to the church or the Sabbath school.

  29. The Review and Herald, December 3, 1895 Among most of the colored people we find unseemly practices in their worship of God. They become much excited, and put forth physical exertions that are uncalled for in the solemn worship of God…. they think that a religion which has no excitement, no noise, no bodily exercises, is not worth the name of religion.

  30. General Conference Daily Bulletin, February 23, 1899 Extracts From Testimonies There have been dishonesty, fraud, the turning away of a man from his rights, and disregarding the principles of the commandments of God. You have had men, schemes, and devising of plans with the idea that you could as a board have power to do anything that would serve the conference, and bring in a revenue. But it was more grievous in the sight of God, because you there were covering the dishonest practises, saying The temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord are we. Yes; but that temple was just as much in need of cleansing as the temple courts in the days when Christ was upon the earth. The Lord hates the mixture he saw in the earthly temple. Unholy bartering in the temple courts brought forth the righteous indignation of an insulted God.

  31. Spiritual Gifts, Vol. 2, p. 284 Sins exist in the church that God hates, but they are scarcely touched for fear of making enemies.

  32. Jeremiah 23:1-2; 25:34, 35 “Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! . . . Behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings.” “Howl, ye shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes, ye principal of the flock; for your days for slaughter and your dispersions are accomplished; . . . and the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape.”

  33. John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

  34. Malachi 4:5-6 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

    S.D.A. Bible Commentary, Vol. 4, p. 1184 In this age, just prior to the second coming of Christ in the clouds of heaven, God calls for men who will prepare a people to stand in the great day of the Lord. Just such a work as that which John did, is to be carried on in these last days. The Lord is giving messages to His people, through the instruments He has chosen, and He would have all heed the admonitions and warnings He sends. The message preceding the public ministry of Christ was, Repent, publicans and sinners; repent, Pharisees and Sadducees; "for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Our message is not to be one of peace and safety. As a people who believe in Christ's soon appearing, we have a definite message to bear,--"Prepare to meet thy God."

    Our message must be as direct as was that of John. He rebuked kings for their iniquity. Notwithstanding the peril his life was in, he never allowed truth to languish on his lips. Our work in this age must be as faithfully done. . . .

    In this time of well-nigh universal apostasy, God calls upon His messengers to proclaim His law in the spirit and power of Elias. As John the Baptist, in preparing a people for Christ's first advent, called their attention to the Ten Commandments, so we are to give, with no uncertain sound, the message: "Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come." With the earnestness that characterized Elijah the prophet and John the Baptist, we are to strive to prepare the way for Christ's second advent.

  35. Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 6, p. 420 As never before, we should pray not only that laborers may be sent forth into the great harvest field, but that we may have a clear conception of truth, so that when the messengers of truth shall come, we may accept the message and respect the messenger.

  36. Patriarchs and Prophets, pp. 403-404 Do not the same evils still exist that lay at the foundation of Korah's ruin? Pride and ambition are widespread; and when these are cherished, they open the door to envy, and a striving for supremacy; the soul is alienated from God, and unconsciously drawn into the ranks of Satan. Like Korah and his companions, many, even of the professed followers of Christ, are thinking, planning, and working so eagerly for self-exaltation that in order to gain the sympathy and support of the people they are ready to pervert the truth, falsifying and misrepresenting the Lord's servants, and even charging them with the base and selfish motives that inspire their own hearts. By persistently reiterating falsehood, and that against all evidence, they at last come to believe it to be truth. While endeavoring to destroy the confidence of the people in the men of God's appointment, they really believe that they are engaged in a good work, verily doing God service.

    Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 3, p. 350 As the children of Israel heard the cry of the perishing ones, they fled at a great distance from them. They knew that they were in a measure guilty, for they had received the accusations against Moses and Aaron, and they were afraid that they should also perish with them. The judgment of God was not yet finished. A fire came from the cloud of glory and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense. They were princes; that is, men generally of good judgment, and of influence in the congregation, men of renown. They were highly esteemed, and their judgment had often been sought in difficult matters. But they were affected by a wrong influence, and became envious, jealous and rebellious. They perished not with Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, because they were not the first in rebellion. They were to see their end first, and have an opportunity of repenting of their crime. But they were not reconciled to the destruction of those wicked men, and the wrath of God came upon them, and destroyed them also.

    Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 635 No stronger evidence can be given of Satan's delusive power than that many who are thus led by him deceive themselves with the belief that they are in the service of God. When Korah, Dathan, and Abiram rebelled against the authority of Moses, they thought they were opposing only a human leader, a man like themselves; and they came to believe that they were verily doing God service. But in rejecting God's chosen instrument they rejected Christ; they insulted the Spirit of God. So, in the days of Christ, the Jewish scribes and elders, who professed great zeal for the honor of God, crucified His Son. The same spirit still exists in the hearts of those who set themselves to follow their own will in opposition to the will of God.

    Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 5, p. 212 It is with reluctance that the Lord withdraws His presence from those who have been blessed with great light and who have felt the power of the word in ministering to others. They were once His faithful servants, favored with His presence and guidance; but they departed from Him and led others into error, and therefore are brought under the divine displeasure.

  37. The Great Controversy (1888), p. 608 As the storm approaches, a large class who have professed faith in the third angel's message, but have not been sanctified through obedience to the truth, abandon their position and join the ranks of the opposition.

  38. Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 1, pp. 223-224 No name which we can take will be appropriate but that which accords with our profession and expresses our faith and marks us a peculiar people. The name Seventh-day Adventist is a standing rebuke to the Protestant world. Here is the line of distinction between the worshipers of God and those who worship the beast and receive his mark. The great conflict is between the commandments of God and the requirements of the beast. It is because the saints are keeping all ten of the commandments that the dragon makes war upon them. If they will lower the standard and yield the peculiarities of their faith, the dragon will be at peace; but they excite his ire because they have dared to raise the standard and unfurl their banner in opposition to the Protestant world, who are worshiping the institution of papacy.

    The name Seventh-day Adventist carries the true features of our faith in front, and will convict the inquiring mind. Like an arrow from the Lord's quiver, it will wound the transgressors of God's law, and will lead to repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

  39. Spiritual Gifts, Vol. 4A, p. 102 Four heavenly angels always accompanied the ark of God in all its journeyings, to guard it from all danger, and to fulfill any mission required of them in connection with the ark.

  40. The Desire of Ages, p. 760 From His hands and feet the blood fell, drop by drop, upon the rock drilled for the foot of the cross.

    Matthew 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent.

    Manuscript Releases, Vol. 4, p. 243 So Christ, the great antitype, Himself both high priest and victim, clothed with His own spotless robes of righteousness, after giving His life for the world, cast the virtue of His offering, a crimson current, in the direction of the Holy Place, reconciling man to God through the blood of the cross.

    Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 355 On the Day of Atonement two kids of the goats were brought to the door of the tabernacle, and lots were cast upon them, "one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat." The goat upon which the first lot fell was to be slain as a sin offering for the people. And the priest was to bring his blood within the veil, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat. "And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgression in all their sins; and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness." [Leviticus 16:16]

  41. Selected Messages, Book 3, pp. 401-402 All who have genuine faith will be tested and tried. They may have to forsake houses and lands, and even their own relatives, because of bitter opposition. "But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another," Christ said. "Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come" (Matthew 10:23).

  42. Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

    Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 8, p. 67 Jerusalem is a representation of what the church will be if it refuses to walk in the light that God has given. Jerusalem was favored of God as the depositary of sacred trusts. But her people perverted the truth, and despised all entreaties and warnings. They would not respect His counsels. The temple courts were polluted with merchandise and robbery. Selfishness and love of mammon, envy and strife, were cherished. Everyone sought for gain from his quarter. Christ turned from them, saying: "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem," how can I give thee up? "How often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!" Matthew 23:37.

    So Christ sorrows and weeps over our churches, over our institutions of learning, that have failed to meet the demand of God.

  43. Please note the following quote from the book, The Path to the Throne of God: The Sanctuary by Sarah Elizabeth Peck, p. 232 or on p. 176 at this link: As a sort of telescopic side light; we are told on good authority that as the victorious procession of the redeemed, accompanied by all the inhabitants of heaven, journeys forward, "representatives from all over God's universe will line the way on either side of the procession, eager to catch glimpses of the triumphant throng."

    Sarah Peck worked on Ellen White’s staff for ten years in Australia. She also helped with the indexing system used at the White Estate. Among other things, she taught at Union College and worked for the Education Department in the California Conference and at the General Conference. She also helped to prepare Ellen White’s book, Education.

    I believe the “good authority” in the quote above is the same authority that stated the quote below. The Lord showed Ellen White about the representatives from other worlds lining up to see the redeemed, and about the fruit being prepared for the special planet. While her statement was never put into print, she shared it with Jennie Ireland (reported to be her stenographer) and an Elder McClure at her dinner table, shortly before her death. Elder McClure wrote it down and Jennie Ireland reported it. Here is what it states:

    All Heaven was astir making preparations for the coming of the Lord. When Jesus comes, not only do all the angels come with Him, but representatives from all over God’s universe will line the way on either side, from earth to the planet where they are to be entertained. They are lined up on either side, each one anxious to catch the first glimpse of the triumphant throng which Jesus was leading upward. These representatives from all over God’s universe, who are to witness this triumphant march, are now making preparations for their entertainment on a planet where they will spend the Sabbath. They are now bringing fruit from all parts of the universe, from all the other worlds, and storing it on this planet for the Sabbath day’s entertainment of the redeemed. (Rev. 8:1).

    I was shown in this dream that what has been written about the fruit in the Index to the Writings of E. G. White, Vol. 3, Appendix C, p. 3189, was not inspired by the Holy Spirit, but rather consists of what man has decided.

  44. Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 112 But apart from Bible history, geology can prove nothing. Those who reason so confidently upon its discoveries have no adequate conception of the size of men, animals, and trees before the Flood….

  45. Matthew 26:27-29 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

  46. 1 Corinthians 11:23-24 …the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
